"today in the bay's" bob redell is live for us in san jose where the city plans to repave every road within the next nine years. we're talking about a lot of miles here, bob. >> reporter: we are. we're talking about over 2,400 miles, marcus. we're standing on mel rose avenue, behind me, not far from king and mckee here in san jose, and this road used to be rated poor, because it was so worn
5:03 am
down and krokcracked but it loo like new. it's one of many streets being repaved. later this afternoon, san jose mayor sam liccardo and other city leader also stand out here and hold ace news conference to let residents know san jose plans to repave all 2,400 plus miles of road within city limits within the next nine years. this is maintenance long overdue. you might recall a report last year by a national transportation research group called t.r.i.p. that ranked san jose second nationwide for having the worst roads with 64% in poor condition. there was another report last year that stated 400 miles roughly in san jose of roads in san jose were in desperate need of repair. the city started repaving earlier this year using money from measures b, t and sb1. the goal is to repave 200 miles of residential streets plus an additional 80 milds of manes of roads by year's end. this would be the biggest year
5:04 am

5:05 am
left. the incident has sparked a debate over the homeless navigation center being built near the condo where the victim was attacked and that victim is weighing in. she wants the city to stop construction pointed to a drug and mental illness problem in the city. >> please take action. don't build this here. you don't have the capability to properly manage it. you don't even know who these people are. >> that woman has joined the group that recently sued to block the center. the mayor's office is committed to the plan, arguing other navigation centers have not led to a neighborhood crime spike. breaking news to bring you on this monday morning, take a look at the flames, leaping from this palette fire happening in salem, oregon. understandably there it is four alarms, 100-foot flames leaping into the air, a lot of firefighters on the scene attempting to get this one out, and also trying to keep the fires from spreading. we'll keep our eye on this for
5:06 am
any developments. authorities in northern ohio arrested a man they said made social media threats against a jewish center. 20 years old james reardon posted a video showing a semiautomatic rifle. it mentioned a local jewish community center. after investigators were notified they found semiautomatic weapons and ammunition at reardon's home. he's due in court later today. authorities in two other states, florida and connecticut, also say they made weekend arrests that may have stopped mass shooti shootings. a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll conducted following the most recent mass shootings shows where americans stand when it comes to gun control. 89% of americans favor expanded background checks on owl firearm sales and transfers. 76 back red flag laws that help law enforcement temporarily remove guns from those deemed a danger to themselves or others, and 75% of those polled support the idea of the government buying back unwanted guns, and
5:07 am
62% of americans favor banning the sale of assault weapons. pleasanton's downtown could soon be growing up. a plan to allow taller buildings to downtown over the next 20 years may be approved at tomorrow's city council meeting. the plan has been in the works for years now, but it is not without opposition. some residents say it will destroy the city's small town feel. the plan would rise the height limit for public and institutional buildings from 40 feet to 46 feet. commercial buildings would be capped at 40 feet. happening today, in contra costa county, the pleasant hill councilmembers vote on allowing a pair of delivery only medical marijuana businesses. under the proposed ordinance, those stores would have to be at least 600 feet away from schools, day care centers and youth centers, and no other types of marijuana business would be allowed within city limits. firefighters rescued cats from trees countless times but yesterday firefighters had to save a dog in san mateo. the crowd gathered to watch as
5:08 am
the men on truck safe ly took that dog from a balcony on south b street. firefighters posted the video on social media but didn't mention how the dog got stuck in the first place. maybe it got locked out, i don't know. >> that's weird. why couldn't they go through the home or whatever it was? the business. hmm, but he's stuck on the balcony, not the tree. >> but safely down to the ground. >> if i had a balcony i'd have to child proof my balcony. >> i've had a dog fall off the balcony. that is so important. you have to check. >> absolutely. today he'll get an extended walk but early on hopefully during my break temperatures will be comfortable but might get too warm in through the afternoon. all in all we're starting out our morning with the cloudy skies especially along the coastline. san francisco will be topping out into the upper 60s and again, we have that onshore flow that's going to kick up those
5:09 am
winds to a little bit of a breezy day, and a lot less cloud cover in through the inland areas for the afternoon, so much better clearing, which also means a little bit more of a warmup in through concord. 83 degrees, it's going to be a pleasant day, compared to the 90s that we've got coming up ahead. let's get a check of the traffic with mike. >> should be pleasant at the bay bridge toll plaza but we do see a big backup now. notice the fastrak lanes are moving slowly. the group arrived earlier than we often see. the cash lanes are lightening up. a lot of main line commuters are coming in, maybe because oakland schools started last week so folks have had a chance to adjust to the fall commute schedule. we'll watch that and see how things adjust. there's slowing but getting less focused now spreading it self out south 880 past seventh where there is a crew blocking two lanes. looks like the crew might be on the move, about 45 minutes earlier than they have to clear and that's good news. no problems looking at the early clearing for 24 and no problems

5:14 am
a happy monday to you. lyft is making news. i will get to that one in a second. markets look to bounce higher after president trump said positive things about talks with china. now he met with apple's tim cook on sunday. they had dinner. it sounded like cook convinced him to make apple a special case and keep iphones tariff free. as for china, president trump tweeted "we are doing very well with china, and talking!" a busy week for fed watcher this is week. wednesday we get the minutes from the latest fomc meeting, those are the tea leaves showing the reasoning behind the rate cut. friday, powell will speak. there's an all-out battle between the white house and the fed. the white house wants the fed to lower rates to boost the economy. the fed wants to show it's independent and can't be bossed around but probably should lower rates to boost the economy but the white house doesn't want the fed to do that if by doing so it's saying the economy is in trouble. this is video from march and
5:15 am
lyft ringing the electronic bell on the nasdaq after its successful ipo. today the lockup on lyft shares ends. as of today, a lot of people who have lyft shares who are not allowed to sell them will be allowed to sell them if they wish. that could put a lot of lyft shares on the market. you know the deal with supply and demand. so watch lift today. then over the next few months, let me show you all the other logos. a number of other companies that went public in the early part of '19 their lockups expire as well including pinterest, uber and chewy. chewy is the online pet store that delivers things like dog food. i've been mystified how it's different than to be honest with you. >> i remember. they don't have a puppet. >> they don't have a puppet. they need a puppet. also i get the excuse to run this video and i'll take this excuse to run this video at any time. it was one of the greatest tv commercials of all-time. >> very memorable but they just
5:16 am
didn't make it. >> because they delivered dog food, which is what chewy does. explain to me the difference. >> timing. >> thanks, scott. 5:15 for you right now. you might want to consider packing an empty water bottle before you catch your next flight at sfo. starting tomorrow the airport will no longer sell plastic bottles, not in restaurants more vending machines. this is part of the airport's effort to become more green. sfo installed more than 100 new water fountains. silicon valley's comicon a big success. organizers say more than 75,000 people attended. celebrities came to san jose to greet pop culture and tech fans including the terminator, arnold schwarzenegger, and jason mamo who you may better know as aquaman. tesla is offering rooftop solar panels for rent. elon musk tweets it's available in six states including california as low as $65 a
5:17 am
month. musk says that consumers can consell any time. however, there is a catch here. it will cost you $1,500 to remove the panels and restore your roof. speaking of tesla, remember the roadster shot into space? the car and driver starman, the mannequin, have completed their first orbit around the sun. believe it or not, it's been 558 days since the spacex launch. the car traveled over 762 million miles, certainly well over the 36,000 mile warranty. next stop for the car is mars, where it will arrive in october of next year. >> still playing the music? remember they were playing? >> yes. tires are fine. >> hopefully not "major tom" now. >> the producer said it is still playing the music. >> seems strange just to put space junk out there. >> we did not call tesla -- >> no, i did.
5:18 am
>> i'm still standing by for mine. >> i don't have one. i'm honda, let's go. all right, 58 degrees right now in san francisco. wind speeds 8 miles per hour, and we are going to notice that it's going to be breezy this day or this afternoon into the early morning hours as well, but right now in san jose, 60 degrees. so the onshore flow along the coastline is what's really going to kick up the winds but also what's helped cleared our air quality so nicely. look at the north bay, the coast, inland east bay, south bay, santa clara valley, we're noticing really good air quality, so go outside, take a nice, deep breather, and maybe take your new pup you might have rescued out for an early morning run. by the afternoon here is a look at your microclimate highs. it's still warm but we're below normal for this time of year for inland areas. san jose 82 degrees. 83 degrees for morgan hill. in through the east bay, 72 for oakland. 82 in martinez.
5:19 am
pleasanton 85, and along the peninsula, 77 degrees in redwood city. 78 in palo alto. san francisco will top out in the upper 60s and talking 80s for the north bay. warming ahead. we've got this sort of comfortable weather that will linger with us and by wednesday and thursday, high pressure moves in from the southern plains and when that moves in, guess what's going to happen? our temperatures are going to warm up into the mid-70s for san francisco. mike? >> all right, vianey, they'll go down but they'll go back up again. looking at traffic, it's clear but it will back up again as well. that's typical for the morning commute. little blips here and there, nothing dramatic here. we'll zoom toward the slowing southbound 880 coming off the interchange with the bay bridge and down past seventh, we'll focus on the construction zone. i do believe the two lanes should be opened up over the next 15 minutes. but we have seen a slower drive over the last 20 because again crews are moving and clearing from overnight roadwork. slow down for the flashing
5:20 am
lights and the cone zones wherever you are. the bay bridge toll plaza is the only other spot that shows any slowing. we have a nice drive through the rest of contra costa county, west contra costa county, schools coming online. same thing for livermore schools and that may affect the week's commute later on in the week. we have had a week for oakland to adjust and we have seen more traffic this week than last week about this time at the toll plaza. metering lights should be turned on any second now and again, no b.a.r.t. delays, the stations reopened but we have a delay for capitol corridor. >> thanks, mike. think about your big day ruined by wedding crashers. up next, why authorities are now offering thousands of dollars to help capture a woman they say keeps ruining people's weddings. check out this photo of kari hall, she's sharing it on instagram of her kids. she said it was snapped in the middle of their conversation. be sure to follow kari on your favorite social media platform. we'll all be back. you're watching "today in the bay." we are here to discuss jessie's online time.

be breathing in a lot of dust. a new study telling us that dust does not pose any health threat to people who breathe it in. that's according to the reno gazette journal. veteran burners often band themselves with bandanas, masks to help their noses as well as the throats. experts recommend that people with issues like asthma take extra precaution. one veteran burner is really feeling burned you might say, after a recent theft caught on video. >> surveillance video shows what he says are the thieves walking off friday with what he calls his pride and joy. it's a bike car he's taken with him to burning man for the past decade or so, taken from his san jose home on friday. even later he recovered some but critical pieces are missing that he won't have time to restore before next weekend. >> it's crazy, takes 20 minutes to dismantle something but months to build. >> he says he only managed to get even part of his creation back because he posted a plea to facebook and someone told him where to find it and what was
